Hill commitment to recruiting new entrants in the workforce continues to grow, despite the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. 1 in 4 Hill employees are either currently on our trainee programme or a graduate from the programme. With 118 trainees’ currently across our business increasing to 127 in September 2021, Hill have approximately 17% of the business engaged in our bespoke management trainee programme. In addition to this our projects are committed to 5% of apprentices with many reporting 6% and above. For example on our Aylesbury Estate in Southwark we will provide a wide range of job and training opportunities for Southwark residents, including 224 sustained jobs, 98 apprenticeships and 105 training places.
Some concerns over reporting these figures on the website as we are going through a review of how this data is captured. However it does appear on the next gen reporting and they want us to be showing an annual increase on apprentices.
